Bees & Wasps


Bees and wasps are both members of the Hymenoptera order, but they have some major differences. Bees are hairy whereas most wasps tend to be smoother with a shiny appearance. They also differ in lifestyle and habits- bees live more solitary lives while many species of wasp like to nest together for protection or share food resources among themselves by cooking insect protein into larvae soup!

What are the similarities and differences between honey bees and wasps?

Wasps live in a more regimented society than do honeybees. Wasps also sometimes hunt other insects, while most of what they eat come from dead animals or plants that have already been killed by another animal. Honeybee’s diet is primarily nectar with some pollen mixed in for protein. They love to make their homes out of cavities like tree trunks or abandoned rodent burrows which can lead them into trouble if humans happen upon one of these habitats without realizing it!
